About the Author
When Judy Blume was growing up, she dreamed about becoming a cowgirl, a detective, a spy, a great actress or a ballerina — certainly not a writer, although she always loved to read and make up stories inside her head. When she grew up, her need for storytelling didn't go away, and Judy began writing her stories down on paper.
Twenty-two books, all of them still in print, followed. Millions of readers all over the world rely on Judy Blume books to portray the difficulties and joys of growing up with honesty and humor. Judy says, "While the way we live may have changed, what's deep inside us hasn't."
Judy lives with her husband George Cooper. They have three grown children between them and one grandchild, whose first word was "book!"
